Thank you for the feedback. I have changed the title a bit, so it is not so misleading, and I have added more comments about this snippet to include an example using Hook::LexWrap.

An example problem that this is a solution for, is that a user wants to plug in their USB drive and they want to copy their files to their PC. So, to be user friendly, you could use this snippet as a basis for showing progress while files are getting copied. You could insert Tk progressbars, show remaining bytes, etc.

[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
[TStanley]: I am heading to Arlington, Virginia next week, then I get to spend an entire week at home. Looking forward to that as I will have spent 7 weeks on the road by the end of next week
[talexb]: That's a long road trip. I haven't travelled for business in years.
